The OnePlus One is a premium phone with a mid-range price. Chinese startup OnePlus plans to begin selling the phone this month for $299 and up, offering one of the best deals you’ll find for a phone with a 5.5 inch full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 13MP camera.

At launch, the phone will be available in select markets, including the United States — so it’s not surprising that it passed through the FCC website recently, where you can find photos of the smartphone as well as pictures of its insides and the user manual that will ship with the OnePlus One.

There aren’t really any surprises in the FCC documents, but they do confirm that phone’s specs including its support for 3G and 4G wireless networks. In the United States, customers will be able to use the OnePlus One on AT&T or T-Mobile’s 4G LTE networks.

The OnePlus One will ship with a custom version of Android designed by Cyanogen Inc, although there’s no mention of that fact in the user manual. The manual does confirm that the phone has a 3100mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, a 5MP front camera, and a microSD card slot which can support up to 32GB of removable storage.

Update: While the manual at the FCC suggests the phone will have a microSD card slot, the official spec sheet does not include one. It’s possible this user manual was created before the phone’s hardware was finalized.

While OnePlus has repeatedly said that the battery in this phone would not be user replaceable, the photos of the phone make it look like you should be able to pop out the battery if you open up the rear cover — but the user manual does suggest you only use batteries and other accessories provided by OnePlus in order to avoid damaging your device.

  1. guys: the manula shipped to the FCC was an old manual before the final design change. There is no micro SD card slot in the current phone (there may be memory card support offered through their USB OTG compatibility and a connector cable, but that’s another story…)

    1. How do you get instructions on OnePlus0ne phone, Mine came without it and now I need.

  2. If there is a microSD slot, I am tempted to pick one up even with nine months left on my contract.

  3. Appealing news, nice to see that without micro sd and replacable battery they can’t really harm big brand phones

    1. Dude, you joking, right? There’s a 64GB option for $349 – and I doubt that more than 1% of users will ever need more than 64GB. I guess around 25% will be satisfied with the 16GB, which will retail at unbelievable $299 – with specs better than the $600-Galaxy S5.
      Replacable battery? Did you ever replace the battery in your phone? I’m using cell phones since around the year 1999-2000, and although I’m changing my phones rather rarely, I never had the urge to replace the battery.
